Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Bye Felicia! is a makeover show that relies on lots of racial stereotypes to make it entertaining. There's lots of sexual references, strong vocabulary, occasional arguing, and some social drinking.
Is It Any Good?
The makeover series, the title of which is a dismissive term originating from Ice Cube in the movie Friday, attempts to offer fashion advice and life lessons to fashion-challenged and socially awkward women. It also attempts to touch on some of the personal reasons that have kept them from realizing their full potential.
The coaches are sassy and humorous, but much of what is discussed comes in the form of racially charged stereotypes that are more critical than supportive. Meanwhile, neither the clients' personal obstacles nor the coaches' styling decisions are discussed in any sort of depth. Some folks may find it funny, but overall the show offers little inspiration.
Did we miss something on diversity?
